After doing a short, but hot hike in Ogden Canyon, we decided to head down to the river.
This is actually the Weber River, not the Ogden River. The water is SOOO much warmer, like just warm enough you want to put your whole body in.
Had I known we'd be heading here I would have brought life jackets for the kids, but sometimes you just gotta flow with it.
There were plenty of rocks, pollywogs, fish, and weird eggs that they kids like to touch. It was the perfect way to end a hot hike.
We do have a few Salt Project Shirts left in the shop too!
- I couldn't find the exact address, it's not on Google. There is a sign on the way in indicating a dog park. Follow the main road into Fort Buenaventura Park but take a left that goes around the baseball fields. You'll be on the Exchange Road. It will also lead you right into the Dog Park.
- We took the short walk from the parking lot (next to the dog sign above) and played on that part of the river.
- If you are tubing, make sure to wear life jackets (it's required by law.)
- Be courteous as others will be there with their dogs and kids.
- Shady spots
- Mosquitos were found
- Bathrooms somewhere (Fort Buenaventura Park has some nearby, but I didn't see any as we drove in.)
Dog Park has EVERYTHING for the pups.
- Water Spigots
- Tunnels, ramps, things I don't know what they are called.
- There are many different gates so you don't have to be in just one area with all the dogs
Thank you for sharing this! Our dogs love water but we don't often have time for a full lake day. They loved it here!
